Three Things to Do When Your Passenger Is Injured in an Idaho Motorcycle Crash
Ever since construction has begun on I-84, you’ve noticed an increase in congestion. This particular day, however, the increase in traffic has caused you to become involved in a crash. Even worse—you had a passenger riding along with you who is hurt. Do you know what to do to help? Here, an Idaho motorcycle crash attorney discusses what to do when your passenger is injured.
At the Scene
Your first action should be to call 911 for help to get an ambulance and police at the scene to take care of your passenger. Never attempt to move the person, as you could make an injury worse. Instead, offer support and comfort until help arrives. If possible, look around for any witnesses who may have seen the accident. Collect their contact information and ask if they would be willing to help. Their testimony could prove that the other driver caused the crash.
Your passenger needs your support now more than ever. Helping her around the house, making sure she gets to her medical appointments, and providing emotional support can help her through this difficult situation.
Your passenger may be eligible to receive compensation that can help pay for her medical bills for the treatments related to the accident. Helping her understand her legal rights and providing her and her attorney with as much information as possible increases her chances of getting the compensation she needs. Additionally, let her know that any legal action she pursues will not affect your relationship.
